    100% Original Iraqi Republican Guard Helmet, from Tikrit. Tan helmet with Republican Guard Arabic number “2” in white circle under Republican Guard Red Triangle. Pictures show a lot of tan paint chips. The helmet webbing is in really good shape except there is a tear on the back half of the webbing. There is a bandage that was found under the webbing, webbing has some writing on it, maybe the owners name? The chinstrap is dingy looking as well as the original leather helmet liner. This helmet could have belonged to the Nebuchadnezzar Division or the 2nd Brigade (Combat) of the Special Republican Guard; both were found in Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown.

    100% Original Iraqi Republican Guard Helmet, from Tikrit. Tan helmet with black and green camouflage paint scheme. Chinstrap and helmet liner is in excellent condition with some degree of aging. Helmet liner has someone’s name written in 2 places and has a manufacturer stamp which is hard to see in the picture. Helmet is thicker and heavier than another helmet I had. From Republican Guard base north of Tikrit, Saddam Hussein’s hometown.

    I heard they dont allow people to bring helmets back so easily anymore and they are kind of hard to get now?

    I'll find out when he returns my email, but when i was there on my last tour, we was still allowed to bring home bayonets, uniforms, and such, as long its not weapon related, and yes i know of several other's that did bring , and shipped home Iraqi helmets.

    Thats exactly what some say about German helmets Maybe some people can see the future and the possibility that these might become highly collectable?

    Thanks

    I don't see the Iraqi gear becoming as collectible as WW2German items do, since the Iraqi gear is mostly 2nd hand surplus gear from other countries.

    Plus the German uniforms, and gear was made with so much more quality, and attention to details, unlike the Iraqi gear.

    Don't get me wrong, there will always be a market for Iraqi gear, but never like there is for WW2 German items, especially SS.

    I wouldnt be surprized if some sellers tried faking Republican Guard markings to increase the value on helmets.

    the camo is so crude, almost anybody could paint a few splotches on a IRAQI helmet and say they found it that way

    You would be surprised as that was what a lot of helmets i saw in Iraq, actually had that crude paint on them, and majority of them were just helmets shells, with no shrapnel protection at all.
